This very small red water lily is a very good bloomer and perfect for small sunny ponds or container gardens.
Flowers tend to sit on the surface.
They can tolerate even more shallow water where it is warm and the additional light will reward you with more flowers.
Plant in a little more shallow area than you would the larger lilies about 1 foot to 18 inches deep if you have really cold winters.
Fertilize like all lilies monthly with a few aqautic plant fertilizer tablets during growing season.
